Dementia Care
November 15, 2022

This episode gives an overview of what neurodiversity is and how HR can support with neurodiversity in the workplace.

Michelle Roby, Employment Law Advisor at Napthens, will be discussing:

  • People who identify themselves as neurodivergent typically have one or more of the conditions or disorders such as autism, ADHD, epilepsy, dyslexia, OCD, Tourette syndrome or an acquired neurodivergence (i.e., through incidence or brain trauma)
  • In terms of the workplace, to be seen as ‘inclusive’, an employer needs to make an effort to celebrate neurodiversity while taking steps to accommodate the specific challenges that neurodiverse individuals may face. If an employer refuses to adapt processes with neurodivergent individuals in mind, they actually risk missing out on top talent
  • Top tips to support people who are neurodiverse in the workplace
